I woke up at 5 am, today is one of my favorite days each year. I get to see former co-workers, employers, and most importantly have face time with service providers that address Homelessness because, like me, they believe it can be a temporary problem. I did not want to over sleep or miss it.
Jax and I put on our Mxxxxxx t-shirts and picked up Daze at the office before driving from the 5 freeway to the 110, off on Martin Luther King to Figureroa.
Parking was a breeze with the new parking pass system (you are mailed a link to a pass to print out and turn into the attendant).
I found Carlos Gonzales
at the PATH booth (he used to work at Mxxxxx and he lets me know about the services PATH has).
Here are the other snaps took:
I then walked 5 Kilometers and talked the entire time – shocking NOT and had the chance to tell a few strangers bits of information like – you can use your EBT card for free entrance to museums in LA County.
And I finally met Margarita Eomack of the United Way :
Yes, I am soo pigment impaired that I glow, and pardon the roundness – I am 7 months pregnant…
Then Jax, Daze and I grabbed lunch. Once I sat down my feet started to hurt. I went home and completed my adventure with a foot rub. As I fell asleep, I was so happy to have a home with a chair and the privacy and security to fall asleep.
